A part-time caretaker at a block of flats near Sheffield city centre where a child fell to her death told a jury he didn’t know the fourth floor walkway was defective.

Robert Warner, aged 45, was giving evidence in his defence at Sheffield Crown Court.

He denies causing the manslaughter by gross negligence of Ryaheen Banimuslem, aged two-and-a-half, who died in June 2012 after she fell through a gap in the walkway where a glass panel should have been.
